was the fork in the road here at Mesa/Boogie®. It was
the year we embarked on a mission to Rectify high gain
guitar and reintroduce MESA Engineering® to the world.
the early 70's the Boogie™ Mark Series amplifiers have
been famous for their gobs of overdrive and liquid sustain,
making them the choice for a solo voice. Combining this
thick gain with our on board 5 Band Graphic EQ produced
lethal crunch as well and these trademark sounds propelled
players and MESA into the spotlight for 20 years.
we yearned for more in our mosh. We envisioned a menacing
sound with the creamy voice of a Boogie, yet with huge
low end that could track faster and stay tight even
under the most extreme settings. In the early dawn of
the gotee and tattoo era we longed to create another
a statement of the times, like the mighty
little Boogie of the 70's. Our quest ended in the Dual
& Triple Rectifier® Solo Heads and the rest is history.
years later, the patented Dual Rectifier® Series amplifiers
continue to astonish us with their success.
the 90's we introduced several other models in this
line aimed at milder gain styles and they too found
their legions of devotees. Yet with hundreds of hit
recordings and thousands of ecstatic customers, the
Dual & Triple Solo Heads remain the mainstay of
the Rectifier phenomenon.
it is with reverence, pride and excitement we introduce
the Newest Rectos®
The Three-Channel Heads!
These new machines of mayhem unleash all the punishing
gain found in the original Rectos' two channels and
add a powerful third channel dedicated to rhythm sounds.
The high gain lead channels now each have an additional
mode dubbed RAW that that travels the region of gain
below that of the original VINTAGE mode. RAW, with its'
touch sensitive response, lets you explore the heavier
side of blues on up to classic rock
the soulful nature of this amazing tube rectified power
these 3 new versatile channels, 8 incredible modes,
the new SOLO feature, a Programmable & Footswitchable
Effects Loop and a new stage-ready 5 Button Footcontroller
, the new Dual and Triple Solo Heads are pure-bread,

status bestowed upon their predecessors.
